Freeplay World Events Not Highlighted/Announced

★★★★ Novice

Product: Anthem
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number GTX 1080
Enter RAM memory size in GB 16 GB
Please select your region Europe
Were you on an Expedition when the issue occurred? No
Where did this issue occur? Please include menu name or in game location. In-game, all over the map, during multiple freeplay sessions.
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) 26.03.19 18:00 UTC
Summarize your bug World event notification broadcasts are intermittent, Scar Infestation events show up on the map but are not announced when nearby, also do not count towards world event challenges.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Enter freeplay (I was playing on GM1/2, with no squadmates). Travel around the map, looking for world events. Additionally: Complete a Scar Infestation world event.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sometimes an event shows up on the map but is not highlighted on the HUD or announced by the NPC. No message displayed/played upon completion of a Scar Infestation event. 'World event' challenge progress is not updated upon completion of a Scar Infestation.
What should be happening instead? When there is a world event nearby it should always be highlighted/announced. Scar Infestations should give progress/completion announcements and should count towards world event challenge progress.

The only temporary solution is to keep opening the map to check if there's an event nearby that wasn't highlighted as usual. Does not happen all the time for regular events, but Scar infestations don't ever appear to be highlighted/announced.
